The defunct Joseph A. Muller Army Reserve Center in The Bronx will soon provide 90 units of affordable housing exclusively marketed to formerly homeless military veterans and low-income households.
Permits have been filed for an eight-story residential building at 722 East 212 Street in Williamsbridge, The Bronx. The site is a block away from the Gun Hill Road subway station, serviced by the 2 and 5 trains. B&B Urban is listed as the developer.
Permits have been filed for a 13-story mixed-use building at 265 Logan Street in Cypress Hills, Brooklyn, right next to the border with East New York. The site is two blocks away from the Norwood Avenue subway station, serviced by the J trains. Logan Fountain Developer LLC is listed as responsible for the development.
The team behind the La Central Development has closed a deal for financing towards the construction of their massive mixed-use project in the Melrose Community of the South Bronx. This is one of the largest mixed-income projects currently under construction in New York City. Once complete, the project will span 1.1 million square feet, with five buildings and 992 units entirely devoted to affordable housing.
The push to revitalize East New York continues apace at the Department of Buildings, and new building applications have been filed for five new structures on Schroeders Avenue, on the southeastern edge of the neighborhood. The addresses included in the filings are 389, 392, 400, 402, and 504 Schroeders Avenue, spanning both sides of the street. Each building will rise four floors and contain eight units, for 40 apartments in total, and the total construction area of each project will be about 8,000 square feet, for generously-sized apartments of about 1,000 square feet apiece. Michael Gelfand of MHG Architects, P.C. is listed as the architect, and in a rarity for New York City, the buildings will rise on land that was previously undeveloped.
